The Lola series continues with a new story for your reading pleasure. Even a workaholic like Lola can appreciate the benefits of a vacation. Well, few things are simple for her. Let's see what's she's dealing with at the hotel.
Vacation by RedGoddess
When the economy went downhill, a lot of people settled for "staycations." With more Americans unemployed and losing their homes, spending money on vacations was not on the priority list. Lola can only afford to dream about a getaway, and while she gets the gist of "staycations" she realizes without vacations, hotels wouldn't need workers like her. Lola foregoes any time off and markets rooms for profit to the working poor to stay at the hotel.
Her manager will still take her 2 weeks paid vacation like clockwork, while Lola will convince people to spend money they shouldn't. Consumption remains the core of the American Dream.
